When you think of holiday movies, you probably think of Christmas holidaysand Chevy Chase comes to Tampa to screen this cult film.

If you asked 10 people what their favorite Christmas movies are, I am sure that more than half of them National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. It’s been a favorite of my family and I since I was a kid and I don’t think a Christmas has gone by that we haven’t watched it as a family. In fact, I usually watch it a couple of times over the course of December. It’s just that good. And there’s no denying that there are some quotes in it that anyone you say them to will know which movie they’re from.

Well, this winter you have the chance to get up close and personal with Clark Griswold himself, Chevy Chase.
